    Unhappy A word of warning...(and gratuitous photos)

    0 Not allowed!
    Just a warning for those that have "jumpy" fish you might consider treating in a separate tank.

    I had a cherry barb with a swim bladder infection. I moved her to my hospital tank and began treatment.

    I found this on the kitchen floor the next morning.

    She must have jumped out...

    Here's the lid she managed to squeeze through. I thought she'd be too fat for such a gap...obviously not!

    So...don't assume a lid like that above is ok - it isn't

    She wanted to end her own suffering.

    Ugh.. Sorry about your fish Firefly.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    I'm not sure if you're joking, but I don't think fish are capable of suicide. In any case - she was eating so can't have been feeling that down.

    Sorry to hear it.

    Did you get that tank from Practical Fishkeeping? Have one exactly the same from when I subscribed to them for a year. Good to know that gap in the lid is indeed a risk.
